Do you remember your ASVAB score? I got a 55% on the ASVAB in 1995. I hated my score but it got me into the Navy and A School.

I scored a 95 (after completing only the 10th grade). Despite that, I was denied A school.

Why were you denied A school? I got into A School with only a 55 on the ASVAB.

I was never given a reason...and after being denied 3 times I became resentful and no longer cared. I was 17 when I went in, so I wasn't very mature.

Your score was very good. Only 17 to score so high. Amazing! I had a four-year college degree and only got 55 on the ASVAB. I will not find an excuse. However, I want you to know that the NYC public schools do not properly prepare students for life. I am a victim of public school education.

I took an online sample ASVAB a couple of years ago and scored a 99. My nephew who served in the Marines about 8 years ago scored a 91 with no college.

I blame the NYC public schools. Perhaps, I'm not as smart as I have convinced myself to be.
